So, let's say you're like me, and you notice that there are new features and bugfixes available, and you're ready to upgrade.
When trying to apply the upgrade, use the following process:
- Backup data
- Open an SSH session to the nexentastor box
- Login as root (as opposed to the typical best practice of a non-privileged user)
- Type "nmc"
puts you into the Nexenta Management Console
- Type "setup appliance upgrade" and follow the prompts
It took me about 15 minutes of dorking around to realize that I had to login as root to apply the upgrade (I was using a non-privileged account).
